Archdiocese posts annual report for 2014

The Archdiocese has posted its Annual Report for 2014.

In his introductory letter to the report, Archbishop Richard Smith reviews the pastoral highlights of the year and expresses appreciation for the continuing generosity of parishioners -- whether it's to the regular Sunday collection, the annual Together We Serve appeal, or special initiatives such as support for victims of violence in the Middle East and sponsorship of refugee families.

"Please remember that all these gifts ... are deeply appreciated," Archbishop Smith writes. "May the Lord of Mercy bless you for your loving service to our needy brothers and sisters, and for your generous support of His Church."

In 2014 an estimated 226,600 individuals were registered with the parishes of the Archdiocese – up from the 215,000 recorded in 2013. On the financial side, the report cites operating expenses of $3.20 million, resulting in a net operational surplus of $807,157, compared with a net operational deficit of $345,304 in 2013.
